MOTIF_XS OS 1.5.1 Tests Complete

Some MOTIF_XS users have expressed a reluctance to install the latest version 1.5.1 OS firmware. after exhaustive testing [which included many system resets] my issues appear to have vanished. I am sorry that i have not reported back sooner to make this announcement. I am a disabled brain-injury survivor and my health eats up more of my time that I get to spend online or with my MOTIF_XS.

If you have not installed OS 1.5.1 because of something that I previously stated about it, accept my apology. what may be true for me may not be true for you. There isn’t any problem with OS 1.5.1 firmware.

If you have not already done so, take the time to upgrade to OS 1.5.1 and enjoy its new features. Be sure to always read the README text which clearly publishes all OS changes. Also, prior to installing/upgrading/downgrading firmware, always backup your data to USB DEVICE and after you perform a firmware update always perform a factory reset.

NOTE: When you experience a problem with your XS [beyond resolving it here] by all means exercise your factory warranty and take your synth to a Yamaha service center.
